Those who hide the name of God and even his title “God” under the pretense of reverence, should be ashamed. It is hateful to hide God’s name even if you believe you were doing him a service, the fact is, it is just the opposite to do so.
God said, “Blessed is he who comes in the name of Yahweh” not “the name of Moses”, “Rabbi Smeegle” or “the name of the name”, which makes no sense as you wouldn’t know what God’s name was if it was hidden, or what “G-d” was if you never explained. God’s title and name are not shameful and not curse words: do not hide them.
Also, if God’s name supposedly is unpronouncable as some Judaic’s claim, then why did God give us his name? And who said it is unpronouncable? Did God say that or a mere sinful Judaic who himself claims that he is too sinful to say it anyways? What would a man who is too sinful to say God’s name know or than than he hates God and hates God’s laws and is therefore a law-breaker? Further: it if can’t be pronounced, then what does it matter if someone says Yahweh, Jehovah, Jah or Yah? AND NO ONE CAN BLASPHEME HIS NAME WHO DOESN’T KNOW WHAT IT IS! So why worry about it you Judaics? Why spread your useless self-defeating anxiety to others? How about you pay more attention tot this law: “Don’t lie.”
And of what use is a name that is hidden, and who can know a name that is hidden? So if you love God, say his name with pride, but to those who hate him, it is you who should not say his name unless it is commanded of you by God, and when you say it, say it with fear.
God’s name is an invincible fortress to those who love him, but to the wicked: a bane.
When a man’s ways please Yahweh, He makes even his enemies to be at peace with him. – King Solomon, the wisest man who ever lived, besides his master, Yeshua.
What is the name of God, and should if be hidden and unspoken?
And remember: God spoke his name to Moses, he didn’t merely give it to Moses in writing, so how Judaics claim it is unpronounceable? So then if, as some Judaics might claim: “It’s a lie to say God’s name as if you know how to say it, and that is why you shouldn’t say it” then wouldn’t it have been wrong for Moses to not only write it down, but to speak it aloud as Scripture says he did? And he did so to all Israel, and commanded them to repeat his words to their children and to tell it to foreigners who came into their land (or at least let them know the top laws, as they were required to obey God’s laws when in Israel, and the first and greatest commandment and the anti-blasphemy law both have God’s name in them).
Judaics are not good, but blessed is he who comes in the name of God.
When a country is rebellious, it has many governors,
but a man of understanding and knowledge maintains order.
According to that verse most of the world is rebellious.
Recently I updated three of my posts on three countries I wrote about here, by calling them failed states. I decided to do this because they fit the definition of one. At least that is my informed opinion. To me a government has failed, if often:
1) it does not require that anyone accusing another citizen falsely be required to be punished physically, and to pay back any lost money or make up for any physical or emotional injury done to the person they accused;
2) it’s judges are allowed to deny a decent amount of justice to those who legally have a right to it or allowed to wrongfully punish people, whether they are guilty or not;
3) it’s law enforcers and investigators are allowed to commit crimes and not be punished for it or are paid to commit crimes or are rewarded for crimes;
4) it allows itself or its citizens or non-citizens within it’s jurisdiction to commit crimes without punishment or are rewarded for it;
5) it’s citizens are allowed to be persecuted for their religious beliefs, age, appearance, philosophy, non-criminal work, or some other non-criminal type of life style, for example putting up a cross on their lawn or flag if it is not an obvious eyesore or if it’s owner only intends to place such an object there for no longer than 40 days (which is a traditionally maximum fasting/mourning period);
6) it becomes so unbearable that it’s citizens go into hiding within the country, escape to another country, or rebellions composed of many people occur;
7) it ignores its citizens.
The Difference Between an Oppresor and a Government
Everyone who is not insane knows that a person is not in authority of you just because they say they are, nor are they in authority over you merely because of their appearance, such as being taller, nor are they if they use high words or speak eloquently, and not even if they merely have more physical strength or more intelligence power than you.
The Difference Between an Gang and a Government
The criminal version of a gang is a group of people who cooperate together to commit crimes. It doesn’t matter if they under a government or not. They are a group of bandits.
A government however is a group of people who cooperates together to protect people from crime. That’s all a government basically is. It should not own an excessive amount of land or have an excessive amount of wealth lest they forget God and do whatever they want, making up laws based on their mere corrupt hearts, whims, personal desires.
A government is no longer a government if it has become so corrupt, that not only does it not obey God’s basic laws of not lying, stealing, or murdering, which everyone instictively feels is wrong as children and even into adulthood (unless they are insane or have become extremely corrupt), that it often commits crimes, and those who commit the crimes are not punished soon. When it is like that, it doesn’t matter if it gives protection to its people, because it is at the same time endangering the lives of its people. It is no more a government, or its ruler no more a ruler than a man in a bank with a gun, who is robbing the bank while using that gun to protect that bank from another robber or robbers.
If your government is a robber, this does not mean you are free to commit crimes, or against the robber, and it doesn’t mean that it would be wise to attack the robber, but what is wise it to try and win your freedom when it is best for your safety and heart (doing what is best for your heart is sometimes what is safest, but sometimes not). If the your government is like a robber, and worse: refuses to listen after clearly having the truth about God’s will being made known to them, that is a government to physically get away from. Some will try to overthrow such a government, and though I don’t approve of that, if they win and do good, then may God bless them always.
Are the U.S. federal and state governments legitimate governments? If they are committing crimes, especially if they are provoking others to commit crimes, and not merely small petty thefts now and then or injustices, then they are not legitimate because they are often or continually endangering the lives of the ones they claim to be governing. Though they may govern often, or continually, they are a danger to the ones they are supposed to only protect. Any gang can govern, but that doesn’t mean that you or all your neighbors or their neighbors should agree to live under their authority.
Does the U.S. federal and state governments qualify as a gang or gangs? Are they often unjust. Do they oppress? Do they put the lives of their citizens more in danger of pain or death then health and life? Is your government able to reason logically enough to protect you well, or it often making mistakes on very important things? Does your government steal from you directly or indirectly? Has it stolen land or money from it’s citizens? Does it do harm directly or indirectly to the innocent or over punish with long jail sentences rather than a short beating or a just fine? Does it lie, withold evidence that would help the innocent or convict the guilty? Does it bribe or mislead it’s judges? Is it partial to the poor or is it partial to the rich? Is it so corrupt that the land it oppresses is filled with violence, filled with groups of violent people, with criminals, with mentally ill people who are a danger to your health and life or that of your family or neighbors? Does it steal from or harm other countries, provoking them to steal from you and harm you?
Which person would you trust with your life and the life of your children and friends and agree to have as a leader:
One who is able to protect you and does not provoke others to harm you, or one who is violent, unjust, hypocritical, oppressive, lies, and endangers your life?
A corrupt government which makes it’s citizen’s hostages, is like a wife-abuser who slowly kills his wives, who provokes them to kill themselves or harm the other wives. What is to be done to the one who is always hitting his wives and yelling them down, who even convinces them that they are the ones who deserve abuse because they yell back at him when he abuses? The punishment for his betrayal is the same for anyone who does wrong: to be put through the same pain they intended or caused, especially if they knew what they did was wrong.
Imagine a government as being like a business company: What would you think of that company if they often mistreated their own employees and swindled their customers and even deliberately poisoned them? How much would you desire to do business with such a company? Upon realizing that the company cannot be trusted, you would try to do as little business with them as possible and search for a better company.

Your land is wasted, your cities burned with fire. Strangers devour your land right before your eyes, and it is wasted, as overthrown by strangers. And the daughter of Zion is left a booth in a vineyard, like a hut in a garden of cucumbers, like a besieged city. Except Jehovah of Hosts had left us a very small remnant, we would be as Sodom; we would be like Gomorrah. Hear the Word of Jehovah, rulers of Sodom; give ear to the Law of our God, people of Gomorrah. To what purpose is the multitude of your sacrifices to Me? says Jehovah; I am full of the burnt offerings of rams, and the fat of fed beasts; and I do not delight in the blood of bulls, or of lambs, or of he-goats. When you come to appear before Me, who has required this at your hand, to trample My courts? Bring no more vain sacrifice; incense is an abomination to Me; the new moon and sabbath, the going to meeting; I cannot endure evil and the assembly! Your new moons and your appointed feasts My soul hates; they are a trouble to Me; I am weary to bear them. And when you spread out your hands, I will hide My eyes from you; yea, when you make many prayers, I will not hear; your hands are full of blood. Wash yourselves, make yourselves clean; put away the evil of your doings from before My eyes; cease to do evil; learn to do good; seek judgment, reprove the oppressor. Judge the orphan, plead for the widow. Come now, and let us reason together, says Jehovah; though your sins are as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall be like wool. If you are willing and obedient, you shall eat the good of the land; but if you refuse and rebel, you shall be devoured with the sword; for the mouth of Jehovah has spoken. How has the faithful city become a harlot? It was full of judgment; righteousness lodged in it, but now murderers. Your silver has become dross, your wine mixed with water; your rulers are rebellious, and companions of thieves; everyone loves a bribe, and is pursuing rewards; they do not judge the orphan, nor does the cause of the widow come to them. And the Lord, Jehovah of Hosts, the mighty One of Israel, says, Alas! I will ease Myself of My foes, and avenge Myself of My enemies. And I will turn back My hand on you, and purge away your dross as with lye, and take away all your alloy. And I will restore your judges as at first, and your counselors as at the beginning; afterwards you shall be called the city of righteousness, the faithful city. Zion shall be redeemed with judgment, and her returning ones with righteousness. And the downfall of the transgressors and of the sinners shall be together; and those who forsake Jehovah shall be consumed. For they shall be ashamed of the oaks which you have desired, and you shall be ashamed for the gardens which you have chosen. For you shall be like an oak whose leaf fades, and like a garden that has no water. And the mighty man shall be like tinder, and his work like a spark, and they shall both burn together, and none shall quench the fire. – Isaiah 1:7-31
And Iran’s fundamentalist Muslim’s stunning blow is… it’s produced enriched uranium (second source). How harsh. Not. Apparently that was the “stunning blow” to the pride of the super powers of the world, pride Mahmoud implies was over having them while the Persians (Iranians) didn’t. If that is what Mahmoud really thinks, then he has the mind of a petty mentally hurt child. It is however understandable why he and other fundamentalist Muslims like him and liberals would think this way, and that would be because the strongest nations have either not helped or hindered Iran from getting needed nuclear weapons material, while Israel, a supposed oppressor of communists and Muslims and everyone in general, is permitted by the other strongest nations, to make and have nuclear weapons without being hindered by those nations.
Maybe now this is going to be a new holy day for Muslims all over the world, “Enriched Uranium Day” or “2/11″, no wait, “Harsh Stunning Blow Day”. It’s better than “EM Punch Day” or “EMP Surprise Special Day”.
Mahmoud and his false prophet friend remind me of two robbers holding up a bank with empty guns, repeatedly telling the police blockading them outside, “Our guns our empty, honest, but were making bullets for them right now so that we can be better at hunting.” And when they finally have the bullets, stand up, wave their guns around, saying, “Our guns have bullets now you police who are too cowardly and stupid to attack us!”
It would be pretty ironic if Israel gave them a real stunning blow back. God truly knows how to make interestingly suspenseful situations doesn’t he?
Israel may have warned that it would attack Iran with nuclear weapons if Iran’s government attempts to enrich the uranium in possession of the Iranian government: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sLlHQTT0FhA
Iran sends warships to Gulf of Aden
5/25/2009 5:43pm IST
Admiral Habibollah Sayyari, quoted by the ISNA news agency, made the announcement five days after Iran said it test-fired a surface-to-surface missile with a range of 2,000 km (1,200 miles), putting Israel and U.S. bases in the area within reach.
Iran said on May 14 it had sent two warships to the Gulf of Aden to protect oil tankers from the world’s fifth-largest crude exporter against attacks by pirates but ISNA did not make clear whether they were among the six Sayyari talked about.
Iranian waters stretch along the Gulf, the Strait of Hormuz and the Sea of Oman. Iran has threatened to block the Strait of Hormuz, through which about 40 percent of the world’s traded oil is shipped, if it were attacked over its nuclear programme.
“Iran has dispatched six … warships to international waters and the Gulf of Aden region in an historically unprecedented move by the Iranian Navy,” Sayyari told a gathering of armed forces officials, IRNA reported.- Source
Iran’s Second Fleet of Warships Returns to Bushehr
Commander of the Iranian Navy’s second division Rear Admiral Hossein Ashrafi, in a special ceremony held in Bushehr, told reporters that Iran deployed its warships in the region after the start of piracy and repeated cases of insecurity in 2008.
He pointed out that following insecurities in the region, the Iranian commander in chief commissioned the Navy to go to the Aden Gulf waters and provide safe passage for ships in the region.
Ashrafi noted that the Navy’s second fleet of warships was commissioned from Bushehr Port and during the mission it thwarted pirates’ operations against ships carrying Iranian goods.
He added that during the mission, the Iranian flotilla contacted 184 oil and commercial vessels of which 41 were Iranian, adding that monsoon with a speed of 110 kilometers per hour was the main problem experienced during the mission.- Source
Report: Israeli warships on way to Persian Gulf
Sun, 07 Feb 2010 07:48:11 GMT
As Israel keeps threatening the regional countries with war, Egyptian maritime sources say the Israeli navy has deployed two missile ships to the Persian Gulf.
Citing the sources, Yediot Ahronot reported Saturday that two Israeli missile ships passed through the Suez Canal en route to the Red Sea on Thursday morning.
The sources said the ships are expected to reach the Persian Gulf within the next four days.
According to the report, Cairo adopted tight security measures to ensure the safe passage of the Israeli ships through the canal.
The waterway, which had not previously been used by Israeli vessels for intelligence reasons, was traversed for the first time in June 2009 when a Dolphin-class submarine reportedly sailed from the Mediterranean to reach military exercises in the Red Sea.- Source
Egypt approves passage of Iranian warships through Suez Canal despite Israel’s objections
The move, which has been described as ‘provocative’ by Israel’s right-wing foreign minister Avigdor Lieberma, will be the first time Iranian vessels have passed through the canal since the country’s 1979 revolution.
Iran’s request was an early diplomatic test for Egypt’s interim military government, which has close ties to the United States and has been ruling since February 11 when President Hosni Mubarak stepped down in the face of a popular revolt. – More here
Iranian warships make second port call in Saudi Arabia
by J.E. Dyer
An Iranian destroyer and supply ship docked in the Red Sea port of Jeddah, Saudi Arabia on Saturday, marking the second such deployment of an Iranian naval task force in a year.
In early February 2011, the first such task force made a stop in Jeddah on the way to an equally unprecedented visit to the Mediterranean. While in the Med – as anti-regime fervor caught fire in the Arab nations – the Iranian warships visited Latakia, Syria. According to disclosures from a Syrian who recently fled his post with the defense ministry, the Iranian warships in 2011 delivered arms to the Assad regime. – More here
